Show Notes

Life is full of storms. I don’t mean actual weather, like thunder, lighting, wind and rain. The storms I’m referring to are the many difficulties we face.

In Matthew 5:45, the Bible says, the sun rises on the good and bad. The rain falls on the just and on the unjust. In other words, none of us are exempt from these life storms. 

Since we all face them, learning how to manage these storms is very important. Learning how to stay calm when the storms of life are raging around you isn’t easy. However, I believe there are some things we can learn to fall back on that will help us “weather life’s storms”. 

In Mark chapter 4, the disciples faced a great storm while crossing over the Sea of Galilee. The Bible tells us their ship was full of water. The storm raging on the outside made the disciples panic on the inside. This is exactly what happens to us. The storms of life raging around us begin to get inside us causing us to feel panicked or overwhelmed. 

It doesn’t have to be that way!  I John 4:4 says, “greater is He that is in you”. In this episode discuss four keys to staying calm during life’s most difficult storms. 

Thanks for listening.
